Naples Cagliari Ferry reviews

  • "Excellent way to get from mainland to Sardinia"

    We enjoyed our experience on the Dimonios, it got us comfortably from Naples to Cagliari on the overnight crossing. We paid extra for a cabin with a window, it had two beds and a little bathroom with a shower, toilet and sink- definitely worth the extra as we were much more comfortable (I usually suffer from sea sickness but with a pill and a lie down in the cabin I was absolutely fine!). We ate in the restaurant and thought the food was good quality and reasonably priced. All in all it was an excellent way to travel to Sardinia and we also saved on internal flights and one night's hotel accommodation, bonus!

  • "Good journey, tricky to find you initially"

    Journey itself worked well. Would be helpful to have some idea of where to find you in the port - even knowing that tirrenia is signposted would have been helpful

  • "Naples- Cagliari "

    My young daughter and I had a great experience traveling from Naples to Cagliari. Our cabin was very clean and comfortable, the team on the ferry were very helpful, and even opened the gift shop in the morning just so my daughter could buy a souvenir pen. This was by far a more enjoyable way to travel than catching another flight, especially after a day walking around Pompei, we felt well rested and relaxed as we disembarked. There was a delay in leaving Naples and we had to wait awhile for the doors to open once we had arrived, but nothing too problematic. We would definitely choose to travel by ferry again.

Naples Guide

The Italian city of Naples, or Napoli as it is also called, is located in the Campania region of the country and lies on the Gulf of Naples, on southern Italy's west coast. The city is located in an enviable position between two volcanic areas, Mount Vesuvius and the Campi Flegrei. The Roman ruins of Pompeii, Herculaneum, Oplontis and Stabiae, which were destroyed the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, are located close to the city as is the city of Sorrento and the beautiful Amalfi Coast. Also located close to Naples are the former parts of the Roman naval facility of Portus Julius, namely the port towns of Pozzuoli and Baia which are both to the north of Naples. The city is adorned with medieval, Baroque and Renaissance churches, castles and palaces and has long been an important centre for the arts and architecture. In the 18th century, Naples went through a period of neoclassicism, following the discovery of the remarkably intact Roman ruins of Herculaneum and Pompeii.

The port of Naples is home to several ferry, hydrofoil and SWATH (Small Waterplane Area Twin Hull) catamaran services, linking numerous locations in both the Neapolitan province, including Capri, Ischia and Sorrento, and the Salernitan province, including Salerno, Positano and Amalfi. Ferry services also operate to Sicily, Sardinia, Ponza and the Aeolian Islands.

Cagliari Guide

The city of Cagliari is located on the Bay of Angels (Golfo degli Angeli) on the Italian island of Sardinia. The city was built on seven hills which identify the city's prehistoric neighbourhoods. The city's eight miles of coastline has a number of beaches with Poetto, perhaps being the most popular and has many restaurants and bars along the shoreline and is a popular place to socialise in the evenings. The city can trace its origins back to the 7th century when it was founded by the Phoenicians and has many fine examples of buildings that reflects its history.

A popular tourist attraction in the city is the castle which towers over the city and located between the harbour and the castle is the city's marina which is in the old harbour district in the city. Cagliari is a very green city and has a number of public gardens for its visitors to enjoy. Located on a hill covered in Pine and evergreen Oak is Monte Urpinu Park and is around 62 acres in size and is perhaps the most wooded of the city's parks. Also in the city is the Park of San Michele which has a medieval castle in it, and the Terramaini Park which has a pond that is popular with flamingos and other wading birds.

From the city's port, scheduled ferry services depart to Civitavecchia, Naples, Palermo and Trapani.
